**(i) the height of the cylinder correct to one decimal place.**

**(ii) the volume of the cylinder correct to one decimal place. (Take π = 3.14)**

**Solution:**

Diameter of a cylinder = 20 cm

Radius (r) = \(\\ \frac { 20 }{ 2 } \) = 10 cm

Curved surface area = 1000 cm

^{2}

**Question 11.**

**The barrel of a fountain pen, cylindrical in shape, is 7 cm long and 5 mm in diameter. A full barrel of ink in the pen will be used up when writing 310 words on an average. How many words would use up a bottle of ink containing one-fifth of a litre?**

**Answer correct to the nearest. 100 words.**

**Solution:**

Height of cylindrical barrel of a pen (h) = 7 cm

Diameter = 5 mm

**Question 12.**

**Find the ratio between the total surface area of a cylinder to its curved surface area given that its height and radius are 7.5 cm and 3.5 cm.**

**Solution:**

Radius of a cylinder (r) = 3.5 cm

and height (h) = 7.5 cm

Total surface area = 2πr(r + h)

**Question 13.**

**The radius of the base of a right circular cylinder is halved and the height is doubled. What is the ratio of the volume of the new cylinder to that of the original cylinder?**

**Solution:**

Let the radius of the base of a right circular cylinder = r
